  • The frigid air, ice and dark days can make winter a hard time of year. Winter often means that kids are stuck inside, and their cooped up energy may become too much. It is difficult to find fun, new activities your children enjoy that will keep them busy. However, with a little effort and creativity, you can keep your children busy and your sanity intact.

  • In this video, learn how to create cute snowmen simply from using old socks. Your kids can add their own personalities to the snowmen and make a simple and adorable craft of their own.

  • If you have smaller children, a fun activity may be "snow paint." Get a squirt bottle or condiment bottle and fill it full of water. Add food coloring to the water and mix it up. You have just created snow paint. Now, find an old storage container and fill it full of snow. Let your kids create beautiful, colorful masterpieces by squirting the colored water all over the snow.

  • Surviving the "post-holiday blues" can sometimes prove to be difficult for the entire family, but with a little effort and creativity, it's definitely doable! For more winter boredom busters for kids, click here.
